The Advocacy Group for the Women’s Center
N.E.W.S. provides support for the Women's Center (TWC) by contributing to the effectiveness of TWC’s leadership and professional development programs and student success initiatives. N.E.W.S. advocates both on campus and off and assists in promoting a positive image and good relations for the Center with the South Hampton Roads communities it serves
N.E.W.S. includes an Executive Board of TWC academic staff and community women who engage N.E.W.S members in various ways. In addition to campus programs, N.E.W.S supports an annual Women’s Leadership Breakfast that recognizes a community woman for her leadership and presents awards to TCC students for their leadership achievements and academic accomplishments.
